Safer streets in Aorere

11 Mar 2024
MD063 Aorere Street Calming Banner 1600x800 v3c

Whether it’s walking, cycling or driving, getting around in Aorere is about to become safer as we work to make it an even greater place to live.

Fancy a walk along Winthrop Way? How about cycling through Courtenay Crescent or driving down Mayflower Close?

Whatever the way we choose to travel, getting around in Aorere is about to improve as we work to make our streets safer.

Mangere Development and our civil construction partners at LEAD Alliance will be building kerb extensions and side islands, speed bumps and raised tables, and adding sections where motorists won’t be able to stop or park their vehicles.

These improvements will make walking, cycling and driving through the neighbourhood safer and more enjoyable, and include improved connections to our schools, parks and recreation areas.

People who live on Henwood Road, Winthrop Way, Courtenay Crescent, Raglan Street and Haddon Street will be impacted by the works, and are encouraged to contact us, either online, by phone or in person at the options below, with any questions or to find more information.

The upgrades help pave the way for more than 470 new homes to be built over the next five years in Aorere, as part of Mangere Development.

Answers to some questions you may have.

What time will works take place? 
We will work between 7:30am – 5pm on Monday to Friday. If critical weekend work is required, it will be on Saturdays between 7:30am and 4pm.

Will I be able to drive to my house? 
If you live in the area, it may take a few minutes longer than usual to reach your home by car. If your access is impacted by our work, we will discuss what this means with you and agree a plan that meets your needs.

Will I still be able to walk around the area? 
All houses and apartments will be able to be accessed while the work is going on. Pedestrians will still be able to walk through and around the area. 

Who is doing the work? 
LEAD Alliance, a Kāinga Ora Alliance partner, has been working in our Aorere neighbourhood since 2020 to deliver infrastructure upgrades so more homes can be built. 

What if I need more information?
If you want to know more, please pop into the Mangere Development Information Centre at 12 Waddon Place - Wednesday to Saturday, 10am-4pm. Or, get in touch with Piritahi on 0508 PIRITAHI or by email: aorere@LEADAlliance.nz.
